Gina Rodriguez on her character on KAJILLIONAIRE – Exclusive

We all know by now Latina actress Gina Rodriguez and her talent, right? A very versatile actress and, this time around, she got a new kind of leading role.

From acclaimed writer and director Miranda July comes a profoundly moving and wildly original comedy KAJILLIONAIRE, which hits select theaters on September 25. Check here where you can watch the movie:

Con-artists Theresa and Robert, played by Debra Winger and Richard Jenkins, respectively, have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio, portrayed by Evan Rachel Wood, to swindle, scam, and steal at every opportunity.

During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger, Melanie, played by Gina Rodriguez, into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down.

I had the opportunity to speak to Gina, virtually, about this different character, the movie, working with Miranda July and Evan Rachel Wood, and more.
